Earlier this year, TurnKey partnered with Canadian integrated payment technology company VoPay to offer fully digitized end-to-end process automation for lenders.
“TurnKey Lender and VoPay are joining forces to further streamline the digitization of every part of the lending process for traditional, alternative and integrated lenders,” the companies said in May.
“While the TurnKey Lender platform specializes in consumer and commercial credit automation, meaningful integration with VoPay will enable fast and efficient automated loan disbursements and installment collections, expanding lenders’ capabilities to meet customer payment preferences.

In 2021, PYMNTS spoke with Elena Ionenko, Co-Founder and COO of TurnKey Lender, about how traditional financial institutions hold key data about their business customers, giving them an edge over their FinTech rivals. .
“Even today, FinTechs and non-bank lenders who offer different business loans online, in many cases, still process applications and make decisions manually,” Ionenko said. “In order to digitize the loan origination process for commercial loans, you need to create specific credit scoring models, which can only be created if you have data.”
